Wolfowitz finances Bin Laden

That caught your attention, didn't it?

Actually, this will happen if Wolfowitz does becomes president of the World Bank, which is financing the construction of a new passenger lounge at Sharm Al Sheikh airport. The company that won the contract for the project is none other than the Saudi Binladen Group, owned by Osama's family (which has condemned him strongly, it must be said.)

The world works in interesting ways...
